Laura Fritz: Apex
Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR - To Feb 23, 2020
Portland artist Laura Fritz makes installations that can vary from crystals in vitrines to videos shining from inside custom-made furniture. Her site-specifi c installations always play with light and architecture while using recognizable elements from nature. In this work she references the movement of bees, birds, cats, moths and butterflies. Her work is noted for the psychological interplay between space and objects, but it is not without lushness and fi ne surfaces, nor even levity.
